The construction of the new Oasis-class cruise ship, Wonder of the Seas, by French shipbuilder Chantiers de l’Atlantique has been delayed due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the shipbuilder’s operation. Delivery of the ship is expected to take place once the pandemic is brought under control. The vessel was originally scheduled to debut in 2021 in Shanghai, China, as the world’s largest cruise ship. Wonder of the Seas is the third ship from the class to be built by Chantiers de l’Atlantique following the delivery of the Harmony of the Seas and Symphony of the Seas in 2016 and 2018 respectively. It is the fifth Oasis-class ship in total.
